After getting only 4% of the vote in New Hampshire last night, Carly Fiorina has bowed out of the 2016 GOP race.
The failure of her campaign is the greatest mystery of the entire presidential race. A strong showing at the GOP undercard debate last August in Cleveland propelled her to main debate stage the following month where she served Donald Trump a cold dish after he had disparaged her appearance in an interview.
For a couple of weeks, Fiorina enjoyed a bounce but it be short-lived. She did get some increased scrutiny about her time at Hewlett Packard. But if her tenure at HP was in fact fatal to her campaign then what of Trump's four Chapter 11 bankruptcies? Or is it that Republicans still aren't ready for a female presidential candidate? The possibility cannot be discounted.
Putting gender aside, Fiorina is clear, concise and rational. But that's evidently not what Republican voters want this year.
